Johnny (Joaquin Phoenix) is an emotionally stunted and soft spoken radio journalist who travels the country interviewing children about their thoughts concerning their world and their future. When his semi-estranged sister Viv asks him to look after her son, Jesse, while she cares for her ex-husband, the emotional tables are turned on Johnny. Cool uncle and inquisitive nephew embark on a journey across country, whilst discovering different aspects to themselves, one conversation at a time.

“This is a movie about listening -really listening – to what other people have to say.” – Wendy Ide, Observer (UK)

“In brilliant black and white and with careful sound design, the director makes very subtle use of flashback to compose this exciting story of family reconciliation.” – Andrew G, Bermejo, Cinemania (Spain)
